Apple Crisp

img_4874

Growing up in New England in the fall meant one thing:  apple crisp, after school, every day.  My mom makes the best apple crisp and still makes it when I come to visit during the cold fall months.  Loaded with tons of spices and a buttery crumb topping it is comfort food at its finest.  After going gluten free recently, I was so upset that the usual oat topping would be off limits, after all, what is fall in Connecticut without warm apple crisp at night?  I was super excited to find gluten free oats at Trader Joe’s and with little added sugar this makes the perfect dessert with a scoop of ice cream or even a fruit and fiber filled breakfast.
